Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for a wonderful weekend. Wish we had a little more snow. There was enough for the kids to sled right down the front hill. They loved it. Thank you

Overpriced given location and quality

  • 2 of 5
First, the house was part of a 'golf and country club', largely forested. The country club facilities are apparently not intended for convenient use by renters, as the process and cost of using the facilities as a non-owner renders them painful enough that it's just easier to go to public facilities elsewhere.

Second, as for the house, yes there was a view of the lake, but heavily screened by trees. The house is badly in need of maintenance and updating. The layout is extremely awkward, with the kitchen seemingly mired in the fifties. It is situated on a steep hillside, with the ground right up to the deck, which contributes to mustiness and a feeling of dampness everywhere. For that reason, we found the finished basement area virtually unusable. The bedrooms, other than the master, were very small, and the master was a two story climb, again awkwardly laid out. Furnishings were cheap and outdated throughout.

Outside, with neighbors crammed in tight on both sides, there is little sense of privacy.

In summary, for the cost, the house and location just is not a good value. Certainly for our next northern lower peninsula vacation, we will look elsewhere.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your important feedback. We are sorry your expectations were not met.

I am surprised you felt the amenities were costly as the ONLY amenity that has a cost involved is golf. The tennis, Pickle ball, pool, fitness center are all complimentary (free to all guests). Golf is $70 for 18 holes plus $21 for a cart or $59 all inclusive if a House Account is opened.

As for the lake view, the only trees that may effect some of the view are those that line the drive to the house. There is even a direct view from the 65 ft deck as well as from the crystal clear hot tub located in the side of the house

Your are correct the house is multi level as described on the website for the property. The main level includes the main great room, dining area, kitchen and two bedroom all of which have a view of the lake except the twin bedroom which over looks the wood. All bathrooms have been remodeled within the last two years. As for the kitchen it does not have granite or tile;however is clean and provides the necessary cooking utilities. The comfortable furnishings are country style and work well for this property.

As for the size of the bedroom on the main level, the room with the king bed is 15 x18. It may seem smaller as it has the king bed. The second bedroom with the two twin beds is 11 x 16.

As for the house being musty and damp, if there had been rain the week you were renting from time to time there may seem possible.

The comment regarding the homes being close is confusing as there is a full lot on each side of the home which means another property could be built on either side of this home if someone wished to do so.

Again, thank you for your feedback. J Labadie, Property Manager

A great getaway

  • 5 of 5
This was the first time my family and I rented this property and it's wonderful. The owner was adding a hot tub when we left and the deck is being refinished. The country club setting was great for playing golf, tennis and swimming. The house itself is lovely with an amazing deck with a view of Lake Michigan. Highly recommended.
